An Israeli court near the Jail in Israel has decided to allow Dr. Aziz Duwaik, the head of the Palestinian legislative council, to get medical attention on Wednesday.

Dr. Duwaik must have tests done before surgery to remove kidney stones, his lawyer Sadi Younis stated, adding that the medical care in the Majido detention center where Dr. Duwaik was detained is very bad.

Dr. Duwaik was taken prisoner by the Israeli army four months ago during an invasion to the West Bank city of Rammallah as part of a campaign that targeted 22 Palestinian law makers mostly from Hamas.
